Binay shown the door, but he’s digging in

By

In a terse statement to the media on Monday, President Aquino said Vice President Jejomar Binay could leave the Cabinet if he no longer agreed with the administration. It was his response to Binay’s speech last week castigating the administration’s supposed shortfalls—an exchange that set them on a collision course at the tail end of the President’s term.

Belmonte toying with law

In imperative tone, he announced that the House of Representatives won’t impeach Vice President Jejomar Binay nor investigate him. He said this with the panache of a commanding general giving orders, thus dimming hopes for Binay’s impeachment.

Impeach VP Binay–Governor Salceda

By

Albay Gov. Joey Salceda had that provocative message last Monday for the Kapihan sa Manila at the Diamond Hotel. Salceda was at the Kapihan to argue against the ban on provincial buses in Metro Manila, but when the debate on the allegedly overpriced P2.28-billion 11-story parking building in Makati between Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano and Buhay party-list Rep. Lito Atienza became heated and the governor was asked his opinion, he said: Impeach Binay and get it over with. There must be closure to the case before the 2016 election campaign.

Dismaying AMRSP position on President Aquino

I felt dismay upon reading the letter of the Association of Major Religious Superiors of the Philippines (AMRSP), which was published in the Aug. 4 issue of the Inquirer. The letter is rather critical of President Aquino, as if implying that he must be impeached. I find the letter reactionary and very different from the progressive stand the AMRSP used to take during the martial law years, when the official stand of the Catholic Church was critical collaboration with the Marcos regime. You collaborate with an enemy and that is treason. The AMRSP had its task forces to fight against the human rights violations of the Marcos regime.
